Sarah Evans’ work is fundamentally based in drawing but reinvented through animation, site- responsive installation and performance. Nature and place are themed throughout which combine to create fictitious and futuristic imaginary worlds. Evans has collaborated with musicians to explore notions of visual music and the synthesis of animation and music, which has led to public performances of improvisational scores to accompany Evans’ animations.
Evans is also co-founder and artist-director of Aid & Abet, Cambridge. Since 2011 Aid & Abet has delivered a varied programme of exhibitions and events from a project space in Cambridge and offsite nationally that has allowed artists to experiment and take risks as well as collaborate and exchange. The programme has encouraged participants to engage with cross-disciplinary practice in both creative and critical ways, fostering a three way relationship between artist, artwork and audience.
Evans holds an MFA from Winchester School of Art and BA Fine Art from Reading University. Evans has shown work in a number of exhibitions including performances at AURORA festival Norwich and Wysing Arts Centre and solo presentations at Hertfordshire University Galleries, Red Gallery Hull, and The West Wales School of the Arts. Evans is also a member of artist collective ROAM.
